I don't see how they're going to get away with playing the season under these conditions. First off, if you listen to the scientists and doctors, players will have to be tested often. 67 players (including PS), 25 coaches, a half dozen front office people totals 88 times 32 teams is over 2800 tests a pop. 17 weeks is 47872 tests. And if they do that 3 times a week each, that's 143,616 tests. How about 5 times a week? Almost a quarter of a million tests. There are members of the American public who can't get a test unless they're showing symptoms. How will that fly? And that's just the NFL. How about MLB? Of course I'm all for pulling this off if they can make enough tests for professional sports AND the public. But we know that probably ain't gonna happen at the rate they're moving right now.
